Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Yesterday I went to a Harry Potter festival in Pennsylvania.  The festival was fun.  There were many clever and detailed costumes.  The festival was located in the town's main street.  Some of the stores added names to their storefronts from the book. 

The festival was located in an adorable city.  The main street had cobblestones.  The stores were so quaint and charming.  The homes were beautiful and regal.

Butternut Squash, Blue Cheese, Cranberry, and Caramelized Salad with Walnuts

Last weekend I went to a pumpkin festival.  It has helped me get in the mood for fall even though the temperature is more reminiscent of summer.  Yesterday I wore a scarf to work, and it was too hot.

The pumpkin festival was fun.  They had a corn maze and a hay ride.  You could also pay a little more to fling some mushy apples with a sling shot.  I'm cheap so I didn't.

Tomato, Basil, and Feta Salad

I think I'm still trying to hold onto summer with this recipe.  Tomato season is over, but I still don't want to let it go.

The weather this week is supposed to get up to 80 degrees, which doesn't help my body transition into fall.

Overnight Carrot Cake Oats

I have found a replacement for my pancake addiction.  For the last month, I have eaten overnight oatmeal almost everyday for the last month.  

It is a very convenient breakfast because you can prepare everything the night before.  I also like that it doesn't need to be heated.  You can grab it and eat it on the go with no morning preparation.

Tomato, Black Bean, and Corn Salad

Fall is in the air.  It is my favorite season.  I like the crisp weather and the colorful leaves.  I even think the barren leaves at the end of the season are beautiful.  Fall starts getting me excited for my two favorite holidays, Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I'm not crazy about winter, but I can survive it.  I have a electric heating pad I put on my bed and warm winter books.

Slow Cooker Beef Barbacoa

I had a long and enjoyable weekend.  I went with a couple of friends to Rhode Island.  It was my first trip to Rhode Island.

It was a long drive, but it was well worth the journey.  We went to a city names Newport, Rhode Island.  This city have many large, Gilded Age mansions.  Wealthy families would build these large homes just to enjoy during the summers.

Moroccan Shrimp

This dish may not look like much, but looks can be deceiving.  It made a scrumptious, though rather plain, meal.

I'm not sure if it is authentic Moroccan cuisine or not.  Moroccan cuisine has been influenced by Mediterranean, Arabic, Andalusian, and Berber flavors.  I'm not sure who the Berbers are, but they are from North Africa.
